Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

St. Andrew's Diversity Statement of Purpose
St. Andrew’s values diversity, equity, and inclusion as integral elements of community and education, and a vital facet of our mission, core values, and Episcopal identity. We believe that community diversity manifests in many ways, including but not limited to ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender/gender identity/gender expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, family composition, and physical ability. In our commitment to attracting, fostering, and celebrating all aspects of diversity, St. Andrew’s aims to create an intentional environment of belonging -- to create a place where every voice matters, every perspective is valued, and everyone has a place at the table.
